"Girl Talk" for MFTWSC60

Yeah - I got time this week to play along with the sketch at MFT, the sketches are always such a great starting point....come and play along!! So here is the sketch...
And here is what I did with it and a look at the inside too......

Okay I had  fun with this card ..... fun stamp to work with the ALM Girl Talk from MFT - love the big iphone!! And yes I had so much fun with the new Bo Bunny "Serenity" line - love the color combo and all the fun embellishments that go with it. Don't you love her designer iphone case - I want one just like that!!! Okay I used a few of the MFT dienamics on this card.... Decorative Doily, Sweet Stack, Simple Scallop large, Leafy FLourish, and the Polka Dot greeting frame is on the inside. Now I need to tell you what I did on the circle...I cut the patterned circle with a Spellbinder die from the Bo Bunny paper, then I cut the top piece off the Leafy Flourish to add that little bit of flourish to decorate, then I cut some flowers from the rub ons that go with the Bo Bunny paper and I like the look I got with it. To not waste the rest of the Leafy Flourish I added those to the inside of the card!! Hope you like it as I had fun making it for sure!!! 
Colored her up with copic markers and carefully cut her out and popped her up on the circle!!

ATS Wednesday Challenge Reminder - "Fancy Folds"

What fun to try something brand new (well for me anyways) - a sidestep card!! I found some great instructions for making this card at Splitcoaststampers!! (click on the link to go right there) The challenge that was put out last week was to make a card with "fancy folds" and I took a quick look and saw there are some great entries already in for the challlenge ...stop by the ATSWednesday Challenge blog and see what the challenge design team has to show you too - WOW!! So get your supplies out and show us what you can do too - we would love to see your entry :)

 For my card I used Miss Rosalie with Roses, Be Happy Sentiment set and Sweet November Mushroom Set all from C. C. Designs. (told you the other day that I love this mushroom set!!)  The paper is Little Yellow Bicycle - Paradise line. I sat down the other night and colored her and did not write down what colors that I used from my copic box ... was just having fun!! I know I am looking forward to making more sidestep cards in the near future...maybe for Easter...... :)

ATS Review Day - "Hugs to You"

Okay here is another card from the very fun February release at All That Scraps with the fun C.C. Design stamps, and today we are highlighting the designs of Amy Young.  This cute little guy is 'Sweet November's shroom'. Don't you just love his mushroom top hat? The tall mushroom beside him and the sentimnet are from the Mushroom set ( I used the smaller mushroom on the inside) - these mushrooms are great for coloring and cutting out to put beside your images.I had so much fun using the mushroom border cutter and the acorns and leaves cutter to add accents to this card! I love that with the mushroom border cutter you can cut off pieces and then add it to your card in different spots as a great embellishment - see it under the image, in the lower right hand corner of the card front and again in the inside of the card :) As this card is for a boy I decided to distress the edges of the paper lots - a different look than neat and cute :) The paper I used is very old MME ...not even sure the line it was from.  The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the fun "Be Happy Sentiment" set also released in February.  Be sure to stop by the ATS blog and see what treats the other awesome DT ladies have for you today ..... and coming soon at the end of the month the previews for March ..... (so fun!!)

And yes here are the copic colors that I used for this one:
skin- E00, 21, 11, 51 (R21 for cheeks)
hat and pants - BG11, 32, 72 and YR31, Y21, 26
hair and shirt - E23, 25
eyes- BG000
BG0000 for sky around him and E40 for the shadows.

ATS Review Day - Be My Valentine

Today is our first review day at ATS to remind you of all the amazing stamps and cutters that came out at the first of February!! But also a chance for me to say Happy Valentine's Day to all you bloggers, thanks for the love you leave me with the sweet comments!! And also today I got to use the light tent that my wondeful man gave me for my birthday on the weekend - I love him and the light tent is great!!
Okay now for some details on the card... I used Woodland Lucy (so cute) and the Be Happy Sentiment set (so many great sentiments in that set) all from C.C. Designs at ATS (All That Scraps). I decided to really try and use the papers which are from the 6x6 pad from We R Memory Keepers called "Love Struck" for this card and had fun doing it will be a sweet card for someone that I love!! The hearts were all cut with Spellbinder dies.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Valentine's Card for Mojo Monday

Here is the sketch that the "Mojo" ladies had for us this week.

And here is what I did with it... this one I think is for my wonderful man!!

Here is a close up of the front too....

It is a nice change to not always use my copic markers and do something different. I must tell you that the paper I used is old Basic Grey (Bittersweet) and the "Valentine's stamp ... not even sure what company that is :). I used a few MFT products for the rest of the card which I can tell you about for sure.... the sentiment on the label is from Clearly Sentimentatl About Love set, the labels are cut with Layered Labels and then on both of those I traced around the die with a pencil and cut the shape out to add another layer. The flowers are MFT as well, Flower Trio and the leaves are from the Upsy Daisy set. I added some Kaiser pearls, a flourish stamp and some ribbon and that was that!!
Check out the Mojo Monday Blog to see what other treats were made with this fun sketch!!!  I had fun with it and hope you enjoy it :)

A Bit of Love ....for fun!!

This little darling was made for fun and will be a treat for someone that I love!! Always love to do the inside too and tie it in to the front of the card for fun.

Well I am trying to make time in my week to enter a few of the challenges that are going on when I am not busy making cards for the ATS (All That Scraps) blog where I have the awesome privilege of being on the DT with some very talented ladies :)  So I made this card specifically for two challenges:

Crazy 4 Challenges  - make a scene
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Hugs and Kisses

This is Woodland Lucy and she is sitting on one of the mushrooms from the Sweet November Mushroom Set. Don't you love the little brown mushrooms, which are cut with the C.C. Cutter, Mushroom Border. The first three products are all from C.C. Designs and you can find them at the online store. (click on the words and go right to them!!) The grass is cut with the MFT die called Fresh Cut Grass and the sentiment is on the Oval Tab from MFT (trimmed to fit). The hearts were cut with a Spellbinder die - hint trace the dies with a pencil and cut that out the shape and then you can frame them with cardstock to make them stand out more!! I learned that trick from one of the MFT ladies and love it!! The papers are some older MME papers called Lime Twist, "Life of the Party" .... I have been so good at using up older papers and I now have the new pads here and can't wait to use them!!!!  The sentiment on the front "Hugs & Kisses" is from Spring Sentiments from C.C. Designs and the words on the inside are a wood stamp that I have had for awhile from Craft Smart.
Yes of course I colored with my copic markers:
Skin - E000, 00, 11  / Hair and Shoes -  E31, 35, 37, 39  /  Dress - R12, 14, 17  / Tights - R00, 02 and YG11, 41  Airbrushed BG000 around the image.
See you again real soon!!!

I have so enjoyed combining the different sentimentswith the images. Today I give you a glimpse of how fun the cutters are to use too!! Today's card features the new Mushroom border cutter - love it! The fun stamps that I am showing you today on the front of the card are, Nutter, Mushroom set and Be Happy Sentiments.
Remember I told you that I am trying hard to use paper pads that I I can buy more new ones :) so for this card I used MME Lime Twist "Out of the Blue". Worked great for this card with the little trees on the paper. I paper pieced part of his hat, which is always fun to do!!
